    Hey, sorry if i have missed a thread about this but ive seen a few pics of the S3 8L with black faced headlights, can you buy these or is it a case of opening the light and painting..?

    If its opening and painting, how hard of a job is this..?

    Thanks

    There two threads that could help you....

    There are many others out there if you have a search- but the majority of people will stick a vinyl over the headlights such as a Lamin-X film to give a smoked look or any other colour you may want.

    Btw yes you can buy them already smoked (just look on flebay) but will not be an OEM item and you may lose your Xenons and have to replace with a HID kit.
